Re: [nv-l] MLM functionality in 7.1.4
MLM's do not have maps. They monitor what is on the local subnet
unless otherwise configured to do more. Also remember that MLM
can only poll via ping and not snmp. You can threshold the traps
from the MLM and these can be controlled by MLM and you can
use APM to distribute the profiles to the MLMs. As for the 0 problem
that is related to any device that the MLM will be discovering, however
this is only related to MLM on NT. I don't believe the same problem
affects the UNIX side.

I have returned with more dubious questions about Netview and MLMs. I
am seeking a means of distributed network management using Netview. I
wish to offload some of the processing onto the MLMs that are
distributed out to our major sites. At the same time I want those
remote sites to have the ability manage their own maps and threshold
settings. Can each remote MLM site have its own set of maps?
different from those at the central netview box? Also I see need some
clarification about the embedded zero (0) issue (IY29719). Does this
issue only pertain tot he IP address of the MLM box itself, or does it
pertain to any ip address that the MLM will discover?
Netview 7.1.4 on AIX 5.2 - central server
would like to have the MLM running on NT boxes in the remote sites.
But can look at running them on unix.
I have re read through all the postings here in regards to some of the
same issues I have asked adn the responses, only looking for am ore
precise answer about the IY29719 issue and if anyone has a suggestion
about to to best implement distributed netview environment.
